Anyone bought a multicade from qualityarcades.com? Reviews look pretty good but for some reason I believe reviews of pinsiders more. Specifically, I am interested in what people think of the build quality and the user interface. Reality is I want probably 30-40 arcade games from the 90’s. Finding those amongst 15,000 seems annoying. Am I overthinking this aspect?

Yeah we have one with 30k games and think we only play 20 lol. Consider reaching out to #Kingpingames Chris in WI. He has many variations of these in stock at rather affordable prices and he usually delivers.

I bought mine through Etsy. Im supposed to get it tomorrow so I'll know the build quality pretty soon. It was very reasonable compared to some other companies. $1600 delivered for a 32 inch 4 player. It includes custom vinyl wrap. Trackball extra.

Let me know if you need their info. They can also customize.

Thanks. I’ll check him out. Nice hearing from someone local too!

I’ll definitely be interested in seeing what you think. I’ve been talking to Zak over there and was about to pull the trigger and all the sudden I felt compelled to check with the pinside community for my final approval.

Get and arcade legends 1 and than get the hard drive upgrade. Most cost effective and tons of games.

I’m really looking for arcade games made by Midway and Konami. Also, I have a kind of wonky spot to fit the game into and the depth of the ones from quality arcades work in that spot.

This is the pic of the game I ordered. They're pretty responsive with questions. Their factory is in Cincinnati.

I bought a 3505 tilt up cocktail multicade from a video arcades dot com. It is commercial quality and it was a very reasonable price. The games list for the different options is on their website. When I bought it, shipping was included. I am very happy with my choice. If you get a cocktail, you may want to get a riser because they sit relatively low.

This is exactly what I've been looking for. Thoughts on getting a 2 player versus 4 player machine? The controls on the 4 looked a bit crammed in.

Also, these cabinets look really "slim". They almost appear unstable possible or "tippy". I'm probably wrong but if anyone has purchased one of these I'd love to hear your thoughts.

I was thinking I’d furniture strapping it to the wall like I do my kids dressers.

I would go with a 2 player
I bought a 4 player on Etsy and in the 2 years that we had it we probably used the 4 players a couple of times and it’s a tight fit

My plan is a 2 player simpsons wrap

I've recently purchased from them as well....it will arrive in a few weeks. I purchased the 4 player with a trackball which will most likely be pretty crowded. I may remove one of the joysticks and fit with a spinner for games like Tempest.

One bump to see if I can get some feedback from anyone that has received a game from this company. Thanks

This is the company I had planned on using for one but never pulled the trigger on it. I believe there are some YouTube videos from customers you can watch.

I second the Arcade Legends route. You can pick them up for cheap, relative to other multicades, as mentioned previously you can buy an upgraded SD with about 260, games, the Joshua UI is great, intuitive, and looks great. CGC makes great stuff and this cab is built like a tank, has an original CRT, and uses commercial grade components.
